Sri Karunamayi Graces the Parliament of World Religions in Melbourne, Australia, 2009

Amma to Grace the Parliament of the World's Religions December 5-8, 2009

Amma Sri Karunamayi will grace the Parliament of World Religions in Melbourne, Australia this year as a featured speaker.

Her divine program will begin with a beautiful Observance and Meditation on the morning of December 5, 2009. This heart-warming discourse will bring inspiring tools to people from all faiths, so that individuals may discover the intrinsic oneness of all. Through such discoveries, says our beloved Amma, peace may ultimately be realized across the world and in our very hearts.

On December 8, 2009, Amma will address the entire Parliament alongside other eminent religious leaders. Her sure to be historic speech will highlight the power of women to promote global well-being, and the advancement of healthier, more peaceful societies.

About the Parliament of the World's Religions
